Screen and batter touted.

LG has revealed more details around its Optimus G smartphone following the release of a teaser video late last week.

The smartphone is expected to be released at the German consumer electronics trade show IFA this week, with LG touting its screen as its main selling point.

The Optimus G will sport a 320ppi (1280x768) IPS+ display capable of 470 nits brightness while consuming 70 percent less power compared to a white background.

The display uses a G2 Touch Hybrid display that does away with the glass layer between screen and touch control to offer a 30 percent thinner screen – the same technology rumoured to appear in the iPhone 5.

The Optimus G will be powered by a quad-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 13MP camera and 2GB RAM, while LG claims to have developed a new battery with 60 percent more efficiency than comparable batteries.
